Preliminaries: Barrieau/Brown/Cafaro
November 13
The newest in Jeopardy!'s line of great challenges is coming around again, with fifteen of America's greatest teachers being honored by coming to play the great American quiz show of record. At stake, $100,000 and a shot at $250,000 later on in the next Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions.

What challenges await these educators? How will they rise to meet them? The answers to these questions could be worth $100,000 for the winner, $50,000 for the first runner-up, and $25,000 for the second runner-up. Semifinalists are guaranteed $10,000, while everyone who competes gets $5000 and a copy of "Classroom Jeopardy!". Any and all prizes depend on how far up a player moved in the standings.

So far, Anne Baxter and Patrick Dillon are in the honors classes. Who gets to sit next to them?

James Brown

Daily Double: $600 US Landmarks. Karen, who has to traverse state lines to get to work (she lives in SC, she works in NC), has $3800 to Eli's $6000. She bets $1000 on this: this landmark's Skycity restaurant has been serving its Lunar Orbiter ice cream sundae since the 1962 World's Fair. "What is the Seattle Space Needle?" RIGHT for $4800!

Daily Double #1: $1200 An Eponymous Category. James and Eli are tied at $7800. Eli gets this clue, though. He bids $2400 on this: the name of these breeches is derived from a pseudonym used by Washington Irving for one of his works. "What is Headless Horseman?" No, it's "knickerbockers", leaving him with $5400.

Daily Double #2: $1200 "A" in Geography. James, who rebounded to $9400, is within striking distance of Eli's $12,200. He bets $2400 again on this: Great Britain has several rivers named this, from the Celtic for "river". "What's the Arne?" No, it was the Avon, leaving him further below with $7000.

Final Jeopardy! category: MYTHOLOGY

 

RICH WITH ELECTRUM, THE TURKISH RIVER PACTOLUS IS WHERE THIS LEGENDARY MAN WAS SAID TO HAVE WASHED OFF HIS CURSE

 

Correct response: who was King Midas?

James' response: who is Achilles? WRONG. Wager: $6600. Total: $0
Karen's response: who is Hercules? WRONG. Wager: $3000. Total: $6000.
Eli's response: who is King Midas? CORRECT. Wager doesn't matter.

Semifinalist: Eli Barrieau

Eli had the lead from start to finish. He has a broad range of knowledge, but it will take more than that to make it to the final. Meanwhile, we can safely bid adieu to Kati Sorenson from yesterday and James Brown from today, as both are mathematically eliminated.

Tomorrow, we have your first two clinchers.
